Jainaba Jobarteh: What is a Co-Op Garden?

· Jainaba Jobarteh

Jainaba Jobarteh has loved gardening for as long as she can remember, and a handful of years ago, she began teaching others the art of urban farming through a co-op gardening program. Through this co-op, she’s put fresh produce in the hands of hundreds of members, and it’s only continuing to grow.

If you’re curious about co-op gardening, points like these will help you understand why people like Jainaba Jobarteh are so passionate about these programs:

· A Place to Learn

Experienced gardeners and beginners alike mingle in a co-op garden. Even seasoned pros learn new things with the coming-together of different sources of wisdom, and it’s an excellent place to expand your gardening knowledge.

· A Way to Garden without Space

It doesn’t matter if co-op members live in tiny apartments without even a balcony for outdoor plants – at a co-op, everyone pitches in to help the community garden thrive and they all reap the delicious rewards.

Speaking with the manager of a co-op garden near you, like Jainaba Jobarteh, is the best way to understand the benefits you can reap by joining, as each operation is unique.
